The location: The Nanny's apartment
They have filmed at many of the homes and apartment buildings on Gordon, and at some of them, more than once. This is one such example. This same address was used as Sgt. Doakes' apartment, in Season One.
It's also close to several other Dexter locations, including Teegan's house, Lumen's motel, the First Date Cafe, Wendell Owens' house, the the street where Trinity walked the dog, and the strip mall where Debra picks up the photos for the funeral.

Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?
A. In previous seasons, I've usually had to hunt down the locations after viewing the episodes, using clues from the various scenes. By the 5th season, though, I'd developed a small group of fans, spies & tipsters who kept an eye out for Dexter filming in their neighborhoods, and would let me know in advance when something was about to film there.
Between those reports, and my own personal reconnaissance around town, by the time the first episode aired, I already knew most (but not all) of the filming locations, and only needed to watch the episodes and match up the scenes with the correct locations.
This group of helpful fans includes Kerry, Rick, Joel, Geoff, Ellen, Julie, Susan, Jeff, and others. My thanks to all of them.
